Esben Lunde Larsen, Danish Parliament member (Venstre), held on Monday 27 January 2014, a presentation on perceptions of freedom and civil society set in a Danish-Singaporean historical context. Twenty people attended the debate and Kirsten Ejstrup, the host of evening and the priest at the Seamens-Church, said it was a successful turnout.
“It was a wonderful evening. After Esben’s presentation, we had a fruitful debate with a lot perspectives on democracy and freedom. I wish we could do this more often.”
Kirsten Ejstrup got the same impression from the people attending. Next time, there is an opportunity for such an event, The Danish Seamen’s Church in Singapore will do what is in its power to grab it, she said.
